President Barack Obama’s administration said earlier this month it would invite Iran to US embassy barbecues for the national holiday for the first time since the two nations severed relations following the 1979 Islamic revolution.
“There’s no thought to rescinding the invitations to Iranian diplomats,” State Department spokesman Ian Kelly told reporters.
“We have made a strategic decision to engage on a number of fronts with Iran,” Kelly said. “We tried many years of isolation, and we’re pursuing a different path now.”
Yes, indeed. The mad mullahs and their pet podex A’Had really, truly, believe in life, liberty, and the pursuit of nuclear weapons. Except for the first two of those, of course.
“No thought to rescinding the invitations to Iranian diplomats?” No thought whatsoever, actually. We should be shunning the Iranian regime; supporting their people as much as we can short of invading. We should apply sanctions (e.g. cutting off gasoline imports to Iran) until it really hurts.
But, no. We will, under B.Hussein Obama, continue to pretend that we and Iran are equally at fault.
